McNames Cemetery

Submitted by Ermadean Boardman who writes:

This Cemetery is very neglected and overgrown with plumb bushes, high grass and weeds.  When we were there in October of 2010, we only found the stone of Bell Dorsey.  There could very well be other stones buried under the bushes, grass and weeds. I found the rest of this information at the Historical Society in Lyons.  From the Lyons Cemetery corner on Highway 14, go 2 miles north and 5 miles west on Ave. J.  It is in the NE 1/4 of section 29 Lincoln Township, Rice Co.  The Dorsey headstone is visible from the road.
